Re: Any 180 success stories????
To me, once D is final, there's no more 180. For your situation at least. You seem to want 180 to work in positive directions for R. Which is understandable.
Once D is final, it's no longer cat and mouse. Stop doing what you're dong, heal and be yourself. FIND yourself again if you have to.
Time. Patience... all that good stuff. Use this time wisely, to better yourself.
Just my opinion.
I have to sign my papers tomorrow, or Fri. I'll be at a friends house all day waiting on a package.
Stbxw stipulated "I'd rather not fix what we had, in hind sight I wasn't that happy with it. If you're going to be in my life, I'd rather it be new and better" I told her "I agree, I don't want what we had, I want better as well" She said "Sign the papers and lets see where we go from there"
In the last few days, since i removed my threads and started some serious self reflection, I can see where she was unhappy.
I can be better. I WILL be better. May not be with her in the end, but at least I'll know my grounds when I meet someone else.
36, life ain't over bro. WHO KNOWS what tomorrow will bring? Tomorrow, should be taken as "strides" it could be months, years... who knows. You may find someone totally better for you and think "WOW, why was I so fked up about ex?"
Or... you know, it's possible you may find your way back together. Just as people can grow apart, people can also grow together!
